Les Mills Combat was a Lifesaver
Today I want to share an inspirational story of how persistence & consistency can change your life. Please meet Stephanie. I met Stephanie in October 2012. She needed help and reached out to me as her coach. She is now one the most inspirational people I have ever met. She is a dear friend. I know things can be tough at times and you want to quit. DON’T! If you need help, reach out to me and we can do this together.
Here is Stephanie’s Les Mills Combat Story
I have struggled with weight issues my entire life. When I was a kid, my fellow classmates made up a little song about me and how much bigger I was than everyone else. Hearing that song sung every time I walked by the other kids is something I will never forget.
After many years of stress from life, the graduate school effect, poor eating and lack of exercise, I found myself buried underneath and excessive amount of weight. I think I hid my true self underneath all the big clothes and extra padding. I felt ashamed of who I was and what I had become. I think in my mind, I was living up to so many other people’s expectations with them saying that I was never good enough or did anything right. I didn’t want my photo taken because I never wanted to see myself. I got tired of people looking at me like I was some sort of alien blob.
In October of 2012, I woke up to find that I couldn’t eat. My body had started shutting down and rejecting food, which I later found out was due to developing food allergies. But it was then that I decided to take control of my life and make a difference in how I feel and look. I tried a couple of different workout programs and incorporated Shakeology into my daily routine. However, the workout programs bored me, as I felt I wasn’t being challenged enough. In November, my coach, Christina Bove, told me about this really awesome workout program called Les Mills Combat that was up for pre-order and would be delivered in December. It was Les Mills Combat. I took one look at the program previews and knew I needed it in my life. December 14, 2012, I pushed play and haven’t looked back since.
In the first 60-day round of the Les Mills Combat, I had a total loss of 18 inches and 26.8 lbs. So far, I have completed 5 full rounds LMC Ultimate Warrior and a round of the Les Mills Combat/Les Mills Pump hybrid. After having been on this journey for 13 months I have lost just over 112 lbs and 63 inches overall. Round 7 of LMC Ultimate Warrior with some Les Mills Pump additions is currently in progress, and who knows where I’ll go from there! The universe is the limit!
I am a new person, both inside and out. Les Mills Combat has been my lifesaver and guide. It centers me, it challenges me, and it brings joy to my life. I am thankful that I found this program. I have found that regular exercise is my best friend. Every day, I wake up excited to see the changes happening both with the inside and outside of my body. I still have a ways to go on my journey, but I am enjoying every feeling of “change.”
Les Mills Combat & Shakeology Changed My Life
I know that if I can change my body and my life for the positive, anyone can! Decide you want to change. Commit to making the change. You will find success. It won’t be an easy road – change never is. However, it will be one of the best decisions you will you ever make.
Finding Team Beachbody and Les Mills Combat is one of the best things I have done to improve my health!
